comment Bakoma TeX Word command line file opening
I suspect you may struggle to get answers here: BaKoMa is not that widely-used compared with free TeX systems, and this is a very specific requirement. Have you asked the BaKoMa support people: command line options for GUI applications are not always well documented.

Do you mean similar to \newcommand in the sense of checking for an existing definition, etc.?

comment Is there a command to define a “virtual file” in a tex document
@StevenB.Segletes Doesn't apply here: it's arguments that cannot be long with \def, not the replacement text itself.

comment What are the exact semantics of \detokenize?
@AlexG You'd have to ask the NTS team for a definitive answer, but if you read the docs it's clear that \detokenize and \unexpanded are supposed to provide expandable access to things that otherwise require assignments. The way they are described, they are supposed to work the same as going via a toks, and if you do that the TeX behaviour is to add spaces. The point of that is with multiple tokens, something like \catcode`\a=12\detokenize{\fooa} would leave \fooa (looks like one control word), rather than \foo a (one control word and one token).

comment What are the exact semantics of \detokenize?
@AlexG Well the difference in number of tokens is pretty significant! \detokenize works in the same way as say \meaning or writing to a toks to file: spaces are inserted by TeX after each control word. On the other hand, string does not do this. Try for example \detokenize{\foo\bar\baz} and \string\foo\string\bar\string\baz to see this. The two primitives are both useful.

comment Partially expanding a command
@JohnWickerson By convention, even-numbered scratch registers should be used locally and odd-numbered ones globally. So \toks1 is not appropriate here.

I'd use a group for the toks (see my answer, which I'll probably remove).
